1. Alkaloids of the pyrrolizidine series (platyphylline and seneciphylline) have been isolated by an electrochemical method from the herbSenecio platyphylloides. The amount of alkaloids extracted into the catholyte depends on the current strength and the time of electrodialysis.

2. It has been established that the N-oxide forms of the alkaloids are reduced during the dialysis process.
